Citizen are about to begin a tour with Turnstile and Ceremony, and ahead of that, they've released a new standalone single "Bash Out." It's a driving, garagey punk ripper that sounds like it's channelling some of the band's love of The Strokes. Listen and watch the Mason Mercer-directed video below.

The tour with Turnstile and Ceremony hits NYC for a sold-out show on May 23 at Brooklyn Steel (and Turnstile also play Queens' Knockdown Center on 5/22 with different openers), and Ceremony and Citizen also have some shows together without Turnstile, including NYC-area stops on May 25 at Amityville Music Hall (sold out) and May 28 at Asbury Lanes (tickets). Citizen will return to NYC later this year for a headlining show at Irving Plaza on September 20. All dates are listed below.

Ceremony also just released a new two-song single, and if you missed that, you can listen here:
